How does the i-Cat® FLX Work?
In the past, dentists have used 2D imaging to diagnose dental problems and devise treatment plans to correct them. The i-Cat® FLX has reinvigorated and innovated this process. It harnesses the power of the same levels of radiation used in 2D imaging machines to take complex, detailed, 3D images of the patient’s mouth. These images can be manipulated to examine every angle of a patient’s mouth and jaw and used to devise the most accurate and efficient dental treatment plans possible. These images are captured in a stunning high resolution that allows Dr. Ragan to closely examine any part of a patient’s mouth or jaw.
Benefits of the i-Cat® FLX
When compared to traditional 2D imaging practices, the i-Cat® FLX offers both patients and Dr. Ragan a wide variety of unique benefits. These include:
- The ability to take both 3D scans and 2D panoramic scans
- Dental imaging with lower radiation that traditional 2D imaging machines
- An easy, way to capture a high-resolution scan of the mouth
This device produces significantly better outcomes than other technologies for the correction of OMS, airway and sinus problems, as well as the planning of implants.
